Jumping on the Bandwagon

Well, thought it was about time! Hopefully this won't just be a flash in the pan and I do actually manage to keep my blog up to date. I should imagine it will be a little easier to control than a website - one day I will get there!!

So what's been happening today! I've been up to the gym this morning and managed to get myself a commission for a piece of jewellery along the way!! These days I can't go out of the house without someone approaching me about my jewellery - great feeling, but sometimes I get home and don't quite know which way to turn first, definately not towards the hoover!!!

I think I will try and work on my herringbone necklace this afternoon. I started it at a workshop I attended on Saturday at Jencel in Sheffield www.jencel.co.uk The workshop was run by the lovely Peter www.beadsage.co.uk and he showed us how to 'capture' a Swarovski Rivoli. I will post pictures of the finished piece as soon as I've finished it.
